Spring Flowers

The other day the girls pulled out some clay kits they'd gotten for Christmas.  With spring in full swing, it was time to bring a few flowers into the house - flowers that wouldn't make our eyes water and our noses run!

The kits included a special clay - a very lightweight clay that is moist while being worked with, but then dries into a spongy foam when left alone and unsealed.  So, little rolling pins and shape cutters in hand, the girls rolled and shaped until they formed a beautiful bouquet of various flowers. 

Occasionally they had to wait just a few minutes for one patch to dry before attaching it to another segment or to a stem.     
And here are the beautiful results!
